, minus one, plus one. all that is a power point. our economy is sluggish today, and there's no reason for it. we have a wonderful country. we have great resources, we still have a free world, the opportunity to move forward. here's my message to the leadership in washington, get in the game. >> thank you. >> join us on monday. have a great weekend. "squawk on the street" starts right now. >>> we have breaking news on this jobs friday. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee, with carl quintanilla and david faber. we're closing in on 14,000. a leg higher in futures just moments ago. the dow looking at 112 points at the open. the s&p 500 looking at about 11 at the open. of course, this is after the best month for january, since january of 1987. as for the picture over in europe, taking the lead from here in the united states in terms of gains, we do see the cap up by 1.3%, and the dax in germany up .6 of 1%. in asia, the real star is the nikkei, embarking on 12-week winning streak with the yen weakening down to 92 versus the u.s. dollar. of course, the road map here starts wi
in april. >> we do begin with a stunning gdp report. the economy contracted to 0.1% in the fourth quarter. first decline since 2009. this as we remain on dow 14,000 watch. the index is fewer than 46 points away from that mark. which hasn't been reached since october 2007. the dow component boeing rising pre-market. it earned $1.28 a share in the fourth quarter, beating wall street estimates. it expects no significant impact from any faa directives involving its 787 dreamliner, and is maintaining its production and delivery forecast. let's get to the gdp number. it is apparent that the economy came to somewhat of a screeching halt in the last two months of the year. >> i think cnbe played a big role. i'll calis a one off number. the reason i call it a one off number is there are way too many companies who reported during this period that did not see this level up -- well, let's just say no growth whatsoever. >> decline. that being said, it may be a one off, but it's still a bit surprising, if not scary. >> well, does it not say that the fed's been right in what it's been doing. >> it does.
of time. the economy's growing about 7% a year. including inflation. and how long is that going to take? if you grow 7% a year, that means you double your money every ten years. that means if the stock market is 14,000 now, it could be 28,000 in ten years, and it could be 50,000 or 60,000 in 20 years. >> nice long-term bullish view of the markets. not just for the six months or even the next year. >> you compare it to bonds, which is what he's doing, you feel pretty darn good. it's also -- there's a lot of good chatter about pension plans being so far behind. i would love it, just in terms of companies being able to return money, if they were less worried about pension plans. that kind of talk makes me maybe embolden pension plans to say, let's get a little more risky and maybe we can pay off. that's also going to be very important for stock valuations. >> right. it's going to be another flow of funds into the market from the pensions, not only from the individuals which we've seen. i mean, did you catch vanguard's flows for the month of january? $24.8 billion coming into vanguard's. >>
in the economy for the first time since 2009. the s & p 500 is up more than 5% so far this month. very, very strong month. >> what can you say? this is a great bull market. it is. i mean, the averages went up big. transports led us, okay. could we go for a breather? it would make sense, but the fed is not stopping. it's not stopping the fed. >> s & p keeps putting out these historical numbers, a 5% gain in january and years like that, just going back to '50, 1950, 31% for the year, 27, 26, 31, 45. i mean, just -- does this year hold that potential. >> hear siegel this morning, i know there's controversy, even on this deck, about -- >> for the long term. >> he did call the top. >> he loved housing you and -- my god, i'm sorry. >> my dad's building, the society of towers. >> since the last time we had the gapes, '07, 12-month forward pe is 15. back then, it was 9. we are not overpriced necessarily, given the run that we had. >> keeps rates down, competition from bonds, not so great. i still can't get over that they preserve thafd dividend low tax rate these are bond equivalents, a lot of stock
anymore. you look at the economy and it looks like the market is taking off. maybe a new sense that the ceo world is figuring out, i'm going to figure it out on my own. >> the hardest thing is that politics and business intersecting doesn't work. they do things for noneconomic reasons. somebody said in europe, they don't care about -- they're going to keep europe together. the u.s., i think entitlement reform is serious. i think they have a couple weeks to work this out. >> barry, thank you so much. it's been a pleasure talking to you today. >> thank you. >> that does it for us today. make sure you join us tomorrow. right now it's time for "squawk on the street." >>> good morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm melissa lee, along with carl quintanilla, jim cramer and david faber at the new york stock exchange. the new home price reports were just released. s&p's david blitzer will join us to break these numbers down moments from now. let's get a check on futures. and how we are setting up, this after the s&p ended its eight-day rally. it managed to hold above the 1,500
sensitive stocks that are cheap, they're underowned, and it looks like the global economy could actually outpace the u.s. this year, and for the next couple of years. >> savita we talked to a bunch of strategists this year who are, i would say, aggressive to -- i mean, mixed in terms of their defensive nature regarding sector allocation, that they might step on the accelerator later on in the year once we get past some of the d.c. deadlines and go more cyclical, go more economically sensitive. would your advice be to err on the side of aggressive? >> i think it's -- there's no better time to do it than now. the reason is that, you know, i think the market looks through a lot of these events. what i'm focusing on is growth for the second half. and like i said, cap x, i think that's a strong theme. we're starting to see companies signal they're going to spend some capital. that translates into growth in the second half. why not buy these stocks while they're still cheap instead of waiting until they run up a little bit. that's my accepsense. i think the short-term move, it's a risky strate
